There is so much more to women’s health and pre/postnatal exercise than Kegels and isolated core work. And this is why Becky (the creator of the PVA Pre and Postnatal Series programs) created these programs. You deserve support and access to accurate information on how to begin and go about the journey to feeling like the best version of yourself, without accepting “issues” of pain, discomfort, leaking or just not feeling good in your own skin as your new normal.
Women (and moms!) are underserved with regards to education and accessibility to accurate information about preparing for pregnancy, labor, postpartum recovery, and safe return to exercise after baby and other events such as surgery. The journey of motherhood is one of the most transformative times in a woman’s life and the current lack of readily available information can lead to uncertainty or a lack of much deserved self-care from bump to baby and beyond.
There are many questions that may cross your mind during pregnancy, postpartum, and beyond such as:
- What are the best or safest forms of exercise?
- How or when do I need to modify exercise?
- Do I just need to do kegels?
- How do I properly do kegels?
- What can I do to prepare for labor? Or surgery?
- How do I manage everyday aches and pains of pregnancy/postpartum/post-surgery?
- Do I have Diastasis Recti? And how can I heal it?
- Leaking and issues “down there” are normal after baby right? NO!!
- Can I ever love my stomach again?
All of these and more are answered with current up to date research and standards for care so you confidently be the YOU you deserve.
Each program is a complete guide to exercise and education for pregnancy, postpartum and abdominal rehab. Along with your workouts being conveniently set up on the app PVA Trainer (our FREE app), you will also receive a corresponding eBook to answer all your questions about your current phase of pregnancy, postpartum or rehab, along with tonnes of BONUS workouts and information such as, nutrition, recipes, sample meal plan, advanced core and pelvic floor training, self assessment tools and MORE.
